Managing
HIGH SCHOOL
with ADHD

High School is more competitive and rigorous than it was when we were there.  Managing the demands day-to-day with ADHD can feel impossible to some.  


Some kids have been making good grades until suddenly they can't keep up and they're too distracted.  Their old ways no longer work.  Perhaps, they have never mastered the skills needed and they are really struggling now.


Regardless of your child's natural intelligence, the three biggest struggles high school kids with ADHD seem to have are 


  • organization/prioritization/motivation,
  • handling their stress and mood        
  • knowing HOW to study effectively.


In this small group, your high school student will learn these skills in three, one-hour sessions.  They will have something to take home to remind them what they learned, and you will receive a parent update as well.  









Open to incoming 9th-12th graders


 August 6, 7, 8 from 12n-1:00pm

Bring lunch if they desire



Schedule:

Day One: Organize/Prioritize/Motivate

Day Two: Managing Stress

Day Three: Study Hacks



Cost is $25 per day, or a total of $75 for three hours of invaluable information.  Come to the ones you need!

Managing MIDDLE SCHOOL
with ADHD

Elementary school is child's play.  Middle School can be a giant eye-opening awakening to some kids, especially if they suffer with ADHD.


Remembering what to take to which class, what is due when, and what needs to be brought home each night is taxing.  What worked in earlier years no longer works and it leads to overwhelm and shut down.  On top of all that, they may not even know HOW to study.  


Middle School is the time to learn and hone skills to be used in high school and college.  It is much easier to learn sooner than later because the older they get, the harder school becomes.  


Regardless of your child's natural intelligence, the three biggest struggles middle school kids with ADHD seem to have are 


  • organization/prioritization/motivation,
  • handling their stress and mood        
  • knowing HOW to study effectively.


In this small group, your middleschool student will learn these skills in three, one-hour sessions.  They will have something to take home to remind them what they learned, and you will receive a parent update as well.
